After a massive outpour of support for Brooklyn Nine-Nine after it was canceled by Fox, the show has been saved by NBC!

The upcoming 13-episode sixth season of the workplace comedy will maintain its cast and writers, joining cocreator Mike Schur's two other shows on the network: The Good Place and Abby's.

NBC confirmed the news in a statement to BuzzFeed News. "Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home," said Robert Greenblatt, the chair of NBC Entertainment.

Greenblatt added, "Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”
